The Peruvian Air Force is thought that in the early 1960s have commissioned Rolex with the supply of watches for their officers, mainly different Cosmograph Daytona models. The Daytona 6263 offered here is one of these examples bearing a very crisp engraving on the back showing the writing “Fuerza Aérea del Perú” and for this reason also known as FAP. The Fuerza Aerea del Peru designation is engraved around the edge of the case back with a rotary cutter, as can be noted by its depth and smoothness on the inside. These types of watches were consigned to be used as an instrument and not only for possession that’s why is always difficult to find one in nice conditions such is this lot. The stainless steel tonneau case with screw back, crown and pushers are remarkable for its quality with very sharp edges and o is the steel bracelet. The black dial is the one usually used for military watch and is absolutely fascinating today as it was 45 years ago when it was manufactured.
